Wieber Tries to Push Favorable Bills Through Legislature. An effort is to be made in the clos ing days of the legislature to have two bills passed which will tend to mak'J the use of voting machines more pop ular in this state, and. particularly, in Detroit. Charles H. Wlebei has gone to Lansing to urge their passage. One bill provides specifically that voting machines can be used In all promary elections, while the other impose* heavy penalties upon anyone convicted of tampering with the machines. There will doubtless be a contest in the council, next Tuesday evening, on the question as to whether the in \estigation of the machines shall be by a special committee or by the com mittee on public utilities.

DISCIPLINE RULES ON MBSHIP Machine-Like Precision of Every thing Noticeable on Board Aso in San Franciico Harbor. SAN FRANCISCO, May 15—Disci- Pllr.o! Discipline of a wonderful mu chine-like nature. That's the one big feature that utiikcb the American visitor when he hrst boards a Japanese war vessel. There's plenty of discipline on the wai ships of all other nations, but i there s something dlffeynt about tho Japanese brand. It's the kind that makes the visitor believe that if an officer walked up to a sentry on the deck and said; “Jump overboard and drown youraelf." there wouldn't be a moment's hesitation about complying. When Admiral Ijichi received rep resentatives of the United Slates on board the Aso in San Francisco Bay, the wonderful machine-liko precision of everything was apparent in all the minute details of naval eltquette and all other affairs on board. The squad of murines tnnt stood at attention never varied their positions nor the line of their rifles by a frac tion. Their eyes never wavered from the straight-ahead glance. Their ex pressions betrayed not the faintest curiosity. The officers were punctili ous in their politeness, but it was plain that every gesture, every bow was ac- I cording to rule —no more, no less. The Japanese sailor-men may lack in Initiative, In originality, in Individ uality showing in emergencies—in various qualities which result liable brilliant work shown by gun crews on American ships, but their clockwork discipline Is second to none. Their attitude seems to indicate that in the conduct of warships there is nothing that ever permits uny thought except that theirs is a deadly game of science to be played with nothing but cool heads, absolute carefulness and wonderful discipline.

WINNEBAGO, 111., May IS. —Telltale linger prints, painted in blood on the lamp chimney. This Is all that re mains to guide the officers of the law in their task of finding the fiend who slew aged Mrs. Margaret Urlppeu. Just the red prints of five fingers —but this may be enough. In all the world there won t be an other man whose fingerprints aie ex actly the same as these. In all the Bertillon records In all cities and all countries there are not two alike. The markings of the murderer's fingers was his alone, and he has left that mark where the keenest police blood hounds could see. His getting away was so easy, too Dark, rainy night when all who could remained Indoors. Quiet country town of I.OOU people. No one In the house of death except the unsuspecting vic tim. No one saw the murderer In the house. The dead could tefkao talei. And no one else knew. His deadly deed accomplished, he passed out into the rain aud the night—silent, swift, like another black ghostly shadow in a night ot shadows. But as he finished his foul deed, he seized the lamp to set fire to the house. In that he laid the trial for his pursuers to follow —so plain that they could not fail to see. Leading the human bloodhounds In tills chase Is a woman, Mrs. Mary E. Holland of Chicago, expert In ftnger pdnts. It was singularly fitting that she should be called In —In this case Where fingerprints play so large a part. Mrs Holland began her work by go i Ing over all the finger marks in the Chicago BertlUou bureau. She went through thousands of them. None tal lied. The murderer had never been arrested in Chicago for a serious of fense since the bureau was establish ed. She then sent the prints of the finger marks to every Bertillon bureau In the country. She hurried to Win nebago next. Here Mrs. Holland learned that the old woman went to bed every ulgbt in fear of some mysterious person. That she always barred the doors at night fall. That every late visitor bad to call his name through the barred doors before she would let him in. If Mrs. Grlppen feared an unknown enemy, this clew was worthless. If a known enemy. Immensely valuable. Mrs. Holland followed up the latter theory at once. If a known enemy, who? Mrs. Holland and the detectives who helper her resolved on a daring course. They took Augerpilnlg of every In habitant In the village. The villag ers, who loved the old woman, and were shocked beyond all measure by the ghastly crime, gladly submitted to the process. Now Nfcrs. Holland Is securing tht* names of all people outside Winnebago whom the dead woman knew. She Is picking up every scrap of evidence about the woman's past, trying to dis cover some link of animosity which might lead on to so terrible a crime. Somewhere the man who killed Mrs. Grlppen is hiding. He may have been arrested and Bertilloned some where In the country. Mrs. Holland will soon know. Once known, every police department In America will be set on the trail. Any suspect who may be implicated by any means will at once have his fingerprints record ed. It will be found out thus wheth er or not he was in Mrs. Grippn's little home that night. Mrs. Grlppen, t>s. home-loving, a Wid ow, A cousin of the late Gen. Lew Wal lace, author of “Ben Hur,” lived alone In her little home toward the edge of Winnebago. At 6 o’clock she left the home of a neighbor with whom she had been sewing. It was raining and stormy and dhrk. She borrowed a cloak from the neighbor. She seemed to have no premonition that* death was a few min utes away. She told the neighbor good night. The door closed after her. It was the last time she was seen alive. A few minutes after she reached home, the detectives believe, a knock came at her door. She had not had time to lock It. The murderer met her In the hall. If there were cries of horror they were drowned In the howling of the wind outside. Neighbors put out the fire In the building, and found the ghastly sight In the- hallway. The old woman was stabbed 38 times through the head. KILED 135 FEET IN AIR.

MONKEYS DRAW !DOO_PER WEEK Owner Refuses $25,000 for Highest Salaried Monkeys in World—They Earn $40,000 in 15 Months. PARIS, May 15. —These two mon keys are the highest salaried monks in the world. They draw 4,000 traucs a week—s 800 in real money. H. B. Marinelli, who owns them, has just refused $25,000 for the couple. In the past 15 months they have earn ed over $40,0007 Monsieur and Madame X. —that’s what Marinelli calls the monkeys—are vaudeville artists. Cheap actors are • performers.” The monks are artists with a big A. Nightly they are caus ing shrieks of delight at the Olympia, on a bill with Ethel Levey, formerly Mrs. Geo. Cohan and Alexia the dan cer, to whom Hammerstein paid $4,000 for four weeks last summer. The stage of the Olympia was al tered especially for the monkey act. Out of the stage, on a trap door 10 feet by 10, rises a room, with Mon sieur and Madame X. seated at the dinner table. They are in full even ing dress. They eat their meal with knives, forks and spoons, use napkins, Monsieur X. pouring water first Into his wife's glass, then his own, all with the politeness of well bred people, let ter they undress themselves and re tire in a small bed, the coverings of which they turn down and pull over them again. Then the monks perform all sorts of feats mounted on regulation bicy cles, riding up a plank over a “saw horse” and down the plank on the other side; steering accurately in and around many wiue bottles, placed on the tloor, never spilling one; and last of all. unassisted, mount a tandem and whirl like "Joy-speeders" about the stage. The monks probably will be taßeu to America next fall, but their owner fears the ocean voyage for them; they’re subject to colds, grippe and pneumonia. MORTON DODOES RENT. Reason: Garbage Collection Not Up to Specifications. A verdict in favor of the defendant was returned by a Jury in Judge Mur phy's room. Friday afternoon, in the case of Joseph M. Smith, against Harry B. Morton. Smith, who owns the Forest apartments, at Forest and Becond-aves., brought suit to collect lent, which Morton refused to pay. The latter refused because Smiths’ system of collecting garbage did not meet his idea of what collection really means. It was agreed that the gar bage should be collected by the Jan itor, and Morton insisted that he call for It and take it away. The system employed by the Janitor was to send up the dumb waiter on which Mrs. Morton was asked to deposit the gar bage can. The Jury decided that Mor ton did not have to pay his rent.

Steamer line Evidently L Figure* That Puhlio Pressure Will Foroe Aldermen to Come to Its Terms. No ferry boats are Pinning to Bella Isle, although the usual time for opem log the island season is past, and no boats are likely to run while the com mon council and the Detroit. Bella Islq & Windsor Ferry Cos. sre dead locked over the question of fares. President Waiter E. Campbell, of the ferry company, says that his line has not hired crews nor prepared jj Its boats for the season. He emphat ically declares that the company will not take out any license to run ud der the old ordinance, which specifies that one-way tickets must be sold far five cents. Tencent round trip and pleasure riding tickets only Is the ultl matuin of the company. A strategic feature is the fact that work Is being carried on to make Peache Island a park and ferry line terminal. Mr. Campbell will not say how long It will take to prepare Pache island. “The Belle Isle service Just about maintained Itself last year,” he states. “There are too many people pleasure* riding on one-way tickets, and we sre not going to take out any license un der the old ordinance. It would take several days to get crews and get the boats in shape to run.” “Can you use your Belle Isle boats elsewhere if that service is not con tinued?” was asked. “We may be able to,” was President Campbell’s reply, ' The ferry company apparently counts on the desire of the public for the boat service to force the aldermen to pass a satisfactory ordinance when the hot weather comes on.
